We the Undersigned Believe:


The United States is a free and prosperous nation. We are able to care for the dispossessed and those who long for peace. Around the world people who are persecuted and displaced look to America as a beacon of hope.

Like our ancestors who came to America, refugees share the American dream of building a better life for their children. They also long for freedom and opportunity.

Each year the United States successfully integrates tens of thousands of refugees. When granted entry, refugees are here legally and fully authorized to work.

But that doesn’t make it easy for refugees to find jobs, the cornerstone of a stable life in the United States. When refugees find jobs they stop living as refugees. They become productive members of our society.

We, the undersigned, believe hiring refugees makes our communities stronger and our companies more competitive. We know refugees are often highly skilled and have strong work ethics, in keeping with a nation built by hardworking immigrants. We know refugees often become valuable and loyal team members. They become one of us.

Our worth is not measured by our wealth but by our compassion for our neighbors who, like us, want to live useful, purposeful lives and provide for their families.

We pledge our willingness to hire, welcome, or support refugees, knowing this makes us stronger.
